LZF believes that Latvia should seriously evaluate the allocation of funding.

At the same time, LZF currently does not call farmers to strike and supports the opinion of the Cooperation Council of Farmers’ Organizations (LOSP), that is, to hold protests, a clear goal and reason is necessary.

“We believe that many things can be solved through constructive negotiations, because all the farmers’ demands are on the agenda of the Ministry of Agriculture and are being addressed. Farmers in Latvia are very, very different and not everyone will be able to fulfill their wishes. If one gets everything, the others will be thrown out of the boat,” he believes. LZF.

It has already been reported that the “Zemnieku Saeima” plans to hold farmers’ protests throughout Latvia next week, on February 5. Representatives of the industry have previously stated that the protest is being held in order to draw attention, together with farmers in other European countries, to how much the Strategic Plan of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) makes farming difficult.

Farmers’ regional protests are planned in Saldu, Talsi, Liepāja, Jelgava, Dobele, Bauska, Valmiera, Gulbene, Limbaži, Daugavpils, Rēzekne and Koknese.

“Zemnieku saeima” calls on the government to find solutions to the problems of the industry within five days from the submission of demands. Otherwise, the association promises to expand farmers’ protests to Riga as well.

Farmers’ protests, demanding higher food prices and less bureaucracy, are spreading to other parts of Europe.
